here, I summarize this week's additions to my public naturopathy database. I also link to an ND video each changelog, and I quote from and tag the video in some detail:
the vitalism of:
AANP's J. of Nat. Med. to Appendix B.04.b.,
AANP's FMP to Appendix B.02.;
the science claims of:
NDs Murray and Pizzorno to Appendix I.05.k.;
added the 'naturopathy is pseudoscience and quackery' claim of:
Asian Scientist to Appendix K.07.;
002. video of the week link [not to pun]:
the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors states in "Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors" that naturopathy is "science-based natural medicine" [vsc 2012-02-04]:
#sciencebased #naturopathy #Canada #naturalmedicine #primaryhealthcareprovider
#efficacyclaim #nonpharmaceuticalclaim #www.cand.ca
Note: for 'compositional accuracy', so to speak, here's a CAND member's web page -- ND Lee of CCNM no less -- who practices "iridology" and tells us "Jason was also the class valedictorian for McMaster University’s graduating science class of 1999." So, within this so-called science-based domain of CAND naturopathy lies....iridology.
Lies, lies, lies: iridology, which is hugely BUNK. This is too easy. What went wrong here in terms of regulation, education, and consumer protection?
